was confused about, you had president obama inviting labor unions to talk about this. labor unions are trying to play both sides. seems like they're not representing their members best interests because bringing more cheap labor into the country and making them legal, seems like people it is most threatening to are current union members. at the same time they clearly want these folks to come in and be legal because it would beef up the union rolls which are shrinking right now? >> right. it didn't happen in '86 when we have our last amnesty. didn't increase unionization. the hope this time it will. if you want to represent the interest of american workers obviously encouraging 7 or 8 million illegal immigrants here to go home would be best. unemployment is 15, 20% among the young and less educated who compete will legals. but union leadership is hoping for new members but it also sees itself as part of a coalition politics with progressives. so in a way they're putting sort of coalition politics first hoping for progressive social policy but, their own workers kind of are not their top priori
